Real Madrid are leading the race to sign Brazilian wonderkid Endrick. They have plans to complete the pre agreement by the end of the year. Chelsea and PSG are also pushing to sign the youngster, but the Spanish giants are currently ahead of the pair.
They have entertained the youngster’s parents at the Santiago Bernabeu, and have communicated their sporting plans for the future. With Karim Benzema entering his final years, they will need a long-term successor for the centre-forward role.
Endrick to join Real Madrid within the next month?
And a Brazilian front three of Endrick, Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo could be the next generation for Los Blancos if the move goes through. A deal worth €60 million is being discussed, which is the release clause amount in his contract.
The Palmeiras youngster has the best goal per 90 ratio in the 2022 Serie A. And he is amongst the most highly rated talents to come out of Brazil.
Barcelona were linked with his signature as well. And Xavi had himself mentioned that he had a conversation with Endrick. But, the Catalonian side are not expected to sign him by the looks of things.
Even if Real Madrid can reach an agreement with the teenager’s entourage and Palmeiras, they won’t be able to register him until he is 18. The international transfer rules require the player to be at least 18 when they leave Brazil. Which means he will only be able to travel to Spain in 2024.
However, even though Madrid are ahead in the race, nothing has been finalised yet. And there is still a considerable amount of work to be done to get the deal over the line.
